Am getting married next summer and looking for wedding dress ideas online. I'm hampered by not knowing the right words to search for what I want!

Basically I know what will suit my figure - a v neck (but not plunging all the way down), wide straps or cap sleeves, a structured long waist (possibly corseted and not empire waisted - I don't know what the word is for the opposite of empire waist!)

Structured waist section should end before the hips start. Bottom section not to poofy out just nice and flowing. High back.

Does this make sense to anyone? What keywords should I be using to describe what I'm after?

like this sort of thing?

A line, natural waist, v neck?

Ooh not quite, I want a structured waist section that starts just under my bust and ends below my navel, just above my hips (I have quite a long body). And it mustn't cling to my hips, that would be a disaster smile

This says its empire waisted but its not what I would describe as empire waisted.

My friend found different pictures of dresses she liked and for a local dressmaker to make the dress choosing the best bits from each of the photographs.
